Our Standard Approach
Our typical development agreements require franchisees to build multiple restaurants in a defined geography within a defined period.
Our preferred partner is an experienced and well capitalized multi-unit operator who is probably operating restaurants already with another brand. We typically require a minimum of $1.5 million in net worth for each restaurant to be built, along with substantial cash assets for initial restaurant construction. It is also important our franchisees have sufficient funds to cover working capital costs and startup costs, which are substantial.
